“There are no small parts” – Konstantin Stanislavsky

“B*llsh*t.” – Richard Tanner

You know me.  At least, my face looks sorta familiar, doesn’t it?  Probably because I’ve appeared in over 65 TV shows, feature films, shorts, plays, educational training films, and webisodes.  And once, a commercial for Japanese yogurt.   Or maybe it’s because you were standing next to me in the “15 items or less” line at Ralph’s last week (I swear, I thought a six-pack only counted as one item).  Anyway, I’ve written this show, called small PARTS.  It’s being directed by renowned theatrical director Rick Sparks.  What’s it about?   About an hour and 15 minutes.  Just kidding.  It’s about… YOU.  Again, kidding.  It’s about me, of course – and it’s an uproarious farcical rant chronicling my 20+ years navigating the rocky waters of this business they call Show.

In it, you’ll get to experience the highs and lows, the ins and outs, the thrills and chills of a life devoted – against all odds, advice and common logic – to acting.    You’ll gasp at my exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the exciting world of cable TV auditions, 99-seat Equity Waiver theater, and soul-robbing temp jobs!   You’ll marvel at my tales of unscrupulous agents, psychotic directors and delusional producers!  ( If you’re lucky, I may even name names. )

Best of all, it’s interactive – that’s right; you, too, can be in on the action!  Kind of like Real 3D™.  (Only it’s real.  And in three actual dimensions.)  Sparing no expense, we’ll be employing the latest hi-technology to keep you fully engaged and entertained:  audio tapes, slides, and even (if budget considerations permit), a filmstrip.

It’s a story into which I’ve poured my heart, my soul, and my freakishly oversized ego.   And it’s coming to the Flight Theater in glamorous Hollywood, USA for only 4 (count ‘em) 4 performances. Don't miss this West-Coast and World Premiere!   Did I mention that it’s being directed by renowned theatrical director Rick Sparks?

You’ll laugh!  You’ll cry!!   And then, you’ll go home!!!  (Actually, you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay at the theater because the one-eyed snake lady is doing her donkey show).

    I thought it was great. Richard Tanner was funny and self-deprecating (sic?) but also brutally open and fearless.
